Republican introduces censure measure against Maxine Waters

June 26, 2018

  In the wake of Maxine Waters’s call for upheaval and violence over the weekend both Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have issued statements, without mentioning Maxine Waters by name, saying violent rhetoric is wrong but also stating it was understandable because of the political climate in Washington created by Donald Trump.

  Meanwhile, some Republicans in the House have introduced a censure measurement, here is more:

A House Republican on Monday introduced a measure to censure Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and called on her to resign following her comments calling on Democrats to publicly confront officials in the Trump administration.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) said the California Democrat’s comments do “not become somebody who’s in Congress,” arguing disciplinary action is appropriate.

“So we just introduced it, we have some co-sponsors, but what she did was to basically incite people to come after and attack members of the president’s cabinet,” Biggs told The Hill. “And also spread that out to more people.”

The measure calls on the congresswoman to resign, issue a formal apology to administration officials “for endangering their lives and sowing seeds of discord” and release a statement that neither harassment nor violence is an appropriate form of protest.  

  I would not expect much to come of this, even if the House censures her she is not going to resign and the house is not going to remove her. At best we can expect one of those non-apology apologies where she says she is sorry if she offended anybody without apologizing for the actual remarks.

    It’s not really a bad idea for Mad Max to resign

    I saw pictures of her district she politically represents and for what I was looking at her district was nothing short of a ghetto (she does not live in her district)

    It did not appear Mad Max has/had done much of anything to help those people in her district to lift them up to a better life or a cleaner safer environment

    It is truly time for her to step aside or to be voted out

    …and perhaps even to open up an investigation into her finances would be well warranted

      I would settle for seeing her forced to resign in shame but I don’t think we are even going to see that.

      It could be another show by the Republicans or maybe they are finally catching on that people are sick of what is going on in Washington.
